Abstract

The army and the people use many types of vehicles for industrial applications and military applications. This paper is proposed a construction of a prototype active vehicle suspension system for a one-wheel car model by using a modified Linear Quadric Regulator (LQR). The experimental system is approximately described by non-linear system with two degrees of freedom subject to excitation from profile different road disturbance profile. The active control at the suspension location is designed by using feedback constant gain controller structure. Furthermore, the experimental results show that the active suspension system with LQR more improves the control performance than standard PID controller. On the other hand, the results improved that the modified LQR has superior performance for controlling suspension systems in real time.
